Walter and family, We send thoughts and prayers your way and our deepest sympathy. We always enjoyed seeing Carol at church, smiling and willing to help in so many ways. She has been missed these past months as she struggled with her health. May God comfort all the family knowing she is in His loving care.
I’ll miss you forever, my GG, especially your laugh, your always caring for others before yourself and your always being off talking to someone. I’d ask Walt, “Where’s Carol, and his response was just that...I don’t know, off talking to someone, I’m sure.” Thank you for teaching me how to play mah-jongg. I love you.
There are no words to convey what you meant to me. It was my privilege to be your friend. You were one great lady who had the ability to make each of your friends feel like they were your best friend. There will always be a hole in my heart. I am a better person for having known you. I love you my sweet friend.
